I have been exploring the use of metal in my work more and more this year. I really enjoy the process and aesthetic of transforming a piece of silver, brass or gold to achieve a certain quality that compliments my knotted macrame pieces. The experimentation continues....and I feel, now more than ever, capable to create designs and ideas sketched in my notebook.
Its a beautiful thing being able to evolve through learning, playing and just going for it!!
Here are some recent images from the Bend Fall Festival in Bend Oregon. It was a lovely weekend with many families, artists, great musicians, food, and beautiful weather.
I enjoyed interacting with my customers and fellow artists. Each show is such a different experience and I love the surprise of what I might learn and who I might meet...I am fortunate.
Our photo shoot with Street Shutter Photography and model, Melanie Ooi, was such a success and so much fun. Here are just a few of my favorites. It was a nice collaboration between three artists with different tastes and ideas.
